Online dating chess match

Rated 4.13/5 based on 811 customer reviews

But attraction is a personal thing, and a system like this might leave many feeling under-served.

What if higher-ELO people match with you, but you’re actually interested in the type of people who normally have lower-ELO ranks?

Dating is often framed as a competition, where one has to strive to attract as many people as possible.

In this context, it might make sense to use a system born out of competition to rank which “leagues” people fall into.

The Dating Game is a comedic event where a bachelor or bachelorette sits on one side of the stage, and asks three hidden contestants a series of questions to win a date!

For a competitive system where everyone is trying to achieve the same goal—win—this makes sense.

If the high-ranking player beats the low-ranking player, then her ELO score will only go up a small amount, to reflect the suspected ease of the matchup and suggest more challenging opponents in the future.

But if a higher-ranking player loses to a lower-ranking player, her ELO score will drop significantly, to reflect the severity of the upset.

Unlike many other conventions, the Connecticon Dating Game is a PG-13 event. We do advise parents and younger audience members to take into account that the content of this event will be nothing more or less than PG-13.

IMPORTANT: Please take some time to read the rules.
